Oklahoma was without Ryan Spangler for the second half of its 101-91 win over Tulsa on Saturday after the sophomore point guard suffered a right calf injury late in the first half.

Sooners coach Lon Kruger said it was thought Spangler got kicked in the calf in the first half.

He briefly returned to the game after the injury but did not go through warm-ups at halftime and spent the second half watching from the bench, his leg wrapped heavily.

Kruger said the severity of Spangler's injury was not yet known.

With Spangler out, D.J. Bennett and Tyler Neal split time at the spot during the second half, combining for 17 points after going scoreless for the first 20 minutes.

ANTHEM ALSO HAS FAMILY FLAVOR

Guards Jordan and James Woodard weren't the only family members on the court at Lloyd Noble Center on Saturday.

Before the brothers — Jordan with OU and James with Tulsa — faced off against each other for the first time, their older sister Jasmyne Walker sang the national anthem.
